Accommodation, Restaurants, Bars, Conferences, Functions and other events to the exclusion of
all other terms and conditions, including any which the Client may purport to apply or which
may appear in any promotional literature. Please read these Conditions carefully in order to

accept liability for any errors or omissions and we reserve the right to change information and
descriptions of our services and to amend any manifest error in the quoted prices.

Guests are solely responsible for their choice of services and the suitability of those services for
their needs. The Hotel cannot be held responsible in this respect.

The reservation is deemed to have been accepted by the guest upon confirmation of the same by
the Hotel.


For Advance Purchase reservations, payment will be taken at the time of booking. The Hotel
reserves the right to require payment for all other reservations in full on arrival at the hotel.
Without prejudice the Hotel may allow accommodation and other services to be charged to a
room for settlement at least weekly or on departure, whichever comes first.

Hotel. The item will be returned to the guest upon satisfactory identification of the item. Items
not claimed will be stored for 3 months and then disposed of. The Hotel will charge for items to
be sent.


In the event that a guest is not satisfied with the services received at the Hotel, the guest has the
opportunity in the first instance, to contact the Duty Manager in order to resolve any issues.

Should matters not be concluded satisfactorily, the Duty Manager will escalate the matter to the

themselves with any booking procedures used by third party booking agencies. Please read the
room rate details that are provided carefully before you make your online booking.

Once your booking is made, you will receive an on-screen confirmation reference number – we
recommend you make a note of it, though you will also receive an email outlining your reference
number and reservation details.

Guests are solely responsible for their choice of services and the suitability of those services for
their needs. The Hotel cannot be held responsible in this respect.

In the event that you have to cancel your reservation, you will need your confirmation reference
number, as well as the email address used to make the reservation. The Hotel operates a strict
cancellation policy, depending on the type of booking made.


Reservations are subject to the VAT rates applicable during the provision of the service.
Therefore, if the VAT rate changes, the costs of the services provided during the stay will be
subject to the new greater or lesser VAT rate as applicable.


If for reasons beyond the hotel’s reasonable control, including, but not limited to, strikes, labour
disputes, acts, regulations or orders of governmental authorities, civil disorder, disaster, acts of
war, acts of God, fires, flood or other emergency conditions, or due to any delay in necessary
and essential repairs of the Hotel, the Hotel is unable to perform its obligations under this
agreement, the non-performance is excused and the Hotel may terminate the original agreement
without further liability of any nature. In no event shall the Hotel be liable for consequential
losses or damages of any nature, for any reason whatsoever.

information gathered through all touchpoints with our guests, private and confidential.

online reservation with a credit card, your room is guaranteed until midnight on the day of
arrival, after which the room is released and may be resold. All reservations must be guaranteed
with a major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express). In the case of a no-show or late
cancellation, your credit card will be charged for one night’s accommodation.

the time of booking and the cost is completely non-refundable. A cancellation or change will

Should guests wish to make their own arrangements, the Hotel will have no further obligation.


All bookings are provisional until the relevant Contract (signed by the Client) is countersigned
and dated on behalf of the Hotel. The Hotel will provide the Client with a copy of the Contract
once it has been countersigned on behalf of the Hotel.

The Contract shall specify the anticipated number of guests for the Event, the agreed minimum
number of guests for the Event (the “Contract Minimum”) and the maximum number of guests
permissible for the function room(s) reserved for the Event.

The Client must inform the Hotel of the number of guests it wishes to be catered for at the Event
(the “Final Number”) in advance and in the time frame set by the contract. This Final number will override the anticipated number specified but will not affect the contract minimum.

The contract minimum represents the minimum number of guests set by the contract with the
Client which may be in writing or verbal, depending on the circumstances.


All accounts incurred will be invoiced. Payment is due for all credit accounts on presentation of
invoice. Any queries should not delay immediate payment of the outstanding balance. Queries
should be referred to the Hotel within 7 days of receipt of invoice. No allowance or refund can
be made for meals and other elements not taken within the agreed package rate. Payment must be
made in Pounds Sterling (UK) payable to the Hotel.


The Client must pay the deposit payment(s) specified in the Contract under Billing Instructions.
Should the Client fail to pay any such deposit within 7 days of the due date, the Hotel may treat
the booking as having been cancelled by the Client and:
The Hotel may off-set any cancellation fees which become payable against the deposit. If the
deposit held by the Hotel is greater than the amount of any cancellation fees payable, any balance
shall be refunded to the Client.


Credit facilities within the Hotel may be obtained on application to the Hotel (subject to the
agreement of the Hotel). Credit facilities must be finalised 2 weeks prior to the Event. All
amounts incurred against an agreed credit facility will be invoiced immediately after the Event.
The Client shall pay all invoices upon presentation of the invoice.


When credit facilities are granted but payment is not received within the stated terms, we reserve
the right to charge an appropriate rate of interest (4% above the Bank of England base rate) or
make a collection charge. All such agreed credit accounts must not exceed their credit limit at
any time.


Where under these terms and conditions there is an over-payment made or a refund granted for
whatever reason, the refund will be made to the Client by the same method as the payment was
made in the first instance and in no circumstances will a refund by made to a different entity,
e.g. money received from one credit card refunded to a different card. In the event that such a
refund is not possible, the Hotel will undertake exhaustive enquiries to ensure that no fraud is
being perpetrated before agreeing to a refund to a different entity.


The Client shall pay the Hotel for any food and beverages or other goods and/or services not
provided for in the Contract or otherwise in correspondence but made available upon request of
the Client on the day of the booking or event.


In the event of circumstances beyond the Hotel’s control (including, but not limited to, increases
in the standard rate of VAT), the Hotel reserves the right to vary the prices specified in the
Contract accordingly.

If the Client wishes to cancel a booking or cancel the reservation of some or all bedrooms
reserved either as a block booking or in conjunction with an Event, such cancellations must be
verbally communicated to the Hotel in the first instance, followed by a written notice of
cancellation. The cancellation shall be effective, final and binding on the working day on which
the Hotel receives a written notice of cancellation (the “Cancellation Date”). Any notice of
cancellation received outside of the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm shall be deemed made on the
next Working Day. Postponement of any Event shall be considered as a cancellation of such an
event unless a new date is fixed.

A credit or debit card is required to secure your reservation. There will be no cancellation charge
if a booking is cancelled before 12 noon two days before the arrival date. If the booking is
cancelled later than the stated time, or in the case of a no-show, the first night will be charged.

If the Client cancels a booking, the Hotel will charge a cancellation fee. This cancellation fee
shall be a percentage of the charges payable in respect of the contract minimum (and, if any
separate charge is payable in respect of room hire, of such room hire charge), according to the
number of clear days (that is not counting the Cancellation Date and the day of the Event)
between the Cancellation Date and the date of the Event (the “Cancellation Notice”), as set out
below. If the Event is cancelled less than 3 Working Days before the Event, the Hotel is entitled
to charge according to the Final Number, if higher than the Contract Minimum.

Cancellation Notice (Events)

0 – 7 days prior to arrival – Full charge
8 – 14 days prior to arrival – 75% of charge

bedrooms reserved, either as a block booking or in conjunction with an Event will incur a

room rate) according to the Cancellation Notice, as set out below:

Cancellation Notice (Bedrooms)


0 – 7 days prior to arrival – Full charge
8 – 14 days prior to arrival – 75% of charge

will incur arising out of a cancellation; the actual losses incurred by the Hotel may be greater or
less than the cancellation fees; the cancellation fees are payable whether or not the Hotel is able
to find alternative business in respect of the cancelled Event and/or bedrooms.
